    For many classic car—and certainly all American muscle car—fans, the 1960s are unrivaled in terms of the sheer number of iconic collector vehicles produced throughout the decade. New-car sales records were broken in 1968, and again in 1969. ... That's why the 1960s form the Best Decade in Automotive History.

    Surely it was..

      Yes absolutely.  It was the last decade  where the styling of a car was changed (if even slightly) every year.  You could always identify the year by these changes.

    The 1966 American car was probably never equaled. A guy in "Car and Driver" tore down his '66 Buick after 115 K, No Wear except .010" at very   top of cylinders. Could have almost slapped  back  together.

    After '66, things got sloppier.

    Yes, it was the era of great looking styles, focus on performance, and before government safety/emissions requirements ruined everything.

    I think it was good for muscle cars. But no cars were well made then.

      My grandparents didn't think so at the time. That know it all wasn't repairing them in the 60s.
